I am scheduled for November 13. I am terrified but also want this done very much. Random people tell me scary tales all the time. I keep hearing that 6 hrs of surgery is very dangerous and the anesthesia is dangerous for that long??????? I know it will hurt but I sure do not wNt a blood clot!!! Tips from survivors much appreciated.

We can be surgery buddies as I am scheduled on the 13th as well!!!! LOL Don't let other people get you down with scary comments...I have had one person in person in particular be unsupportive, but I look at the stats and realize that I will be ok! I am healthy and this is not emergency surgery :) They have also estimated that my surgery will take 6 hours (TT/BL) and I was hesitant about that, but I have heard so many times that the "take-off and landing" part of the anesthesia is more of a worry than the actual time under as long as it is less than 8 hours. Your surgeon probably also puts precautions in place (leg compressors etc). I plan on walking every 2-3 hours, even if just for a few minutes, and doing ankle pumps etc. I am nervous too...but more just wanting to get it over with as I have been waiting 13 loooong years to do this for myself :) We will be fine :)

Congratulations! My surgery is on the 11th. So we can recover together ;) Don't listen to the Debbie Downers. ..In fact I haven't told too many people b/c I don't want to hear their negative comments. Any surgery is risky, so that is why they have trained professionals! Good luck to you ♡

Hey guys do you know what a faja is? someone said i should get for after my drains are out. i need some help on what to buy for post_op, i show my husband a list of what other ladies got but he was like you do not have to get all that.. :( just get the important things you need. My MM is on the 25 Nov and i am happy, nervous, anxious.

It's a type of compression garment. Some women like to wear them after they take off the one their plastic surgeon gives them; they feel it gives them more support.

It was great! ! He made me feel so at ease!! I cried when he told me I wouldn't have that scar running from my navel to my pubic bone that I've had since I was 19....40 yrs ago from a surgery involving an ovarian cyst...That spread with all three of my pregnancies! That was the best part of the visit! ! How did yours go?
